Choice Options Application Instructions


In addition to neighborhood schools, Bend-La Pine Schools offers multiple options to meet the individual needs of its students. Choice enrollment is choosing a school other than your neighborhood school. We always recommend families start by checking out their neighborhood school. But sometimes your neighborhood school isn't the best fit for your student or family. If this is the case, you can apply to attend another school.
